    I've just bought a 1999 w208 clk320, and ive just noticed (presumably thanks to the windows down weather) that under acceleration, the car makes a very noticeable whistling noise. It stops if I accelerate harder, and if I take my foot off, it is most noticeable when using just enough gas to...

    Gentle Words of Caution. 124'S

    Every now and again you know you have to do some routine maintenance of a more than the normal kind, even to these noble beasts. So up for change were the rear subframe bushes both fore and aft of my 124 Estate. I may add that the milage is now around 227K and this car works for a living. So...
